Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake met with Baltimore City police, fire, EMS and public works officials Sunday morning for an update on how the city is managing preparations for Hurricane Sandy.
The mayor met with her leaders after first getting an update on Hurricane Sandy from the National Weather Service.
Afterwards, she shared her thoughts.
One of the main points of emphasis, the mayor said, is that residents of Baltimore City prepare themselves for Hurricane Sandy. She said that will allow city agencies to stay focused on greater needs.
Among those needs -- public safety.
The mayor said all nine police districts are being fully staffed for the arrival of the hurricane. In reference to emergency shelters, she said it's too early to discuss.
"We're not there yet," she said.
